. when it rains, it pours. former governor bob mcdonnell of virginia and his wife, the first lady of virginia, maureen mcdonnell, have today been indicted by federal prosecutors on more than a dozen felony charges. if they are convicted of those charges and they face the maximum penalties allowed by law, they could be looking at decades in jail and fines of over $1 million. this is a story that we have been covering from the very beginning. our first coverage of this scandal was back in early april of last year. but, you know what, credit where credit is due. one of those key reporters is going to be here in just a moment to talk about this story. and also some key parts of the story were broken by "the richmond times-dispatch". and those papers and reporters deserve the credit for staying on this bob mcdonnell story in the face of months of denials and stonewalling by that government, and also, frankly, staying on this story in the face of the cynical, dismissal of this story by much of the national press corps, who too often swallow the made-up excuse from the governor's defenders
